Tillandsia juncea is a lovely, easy to grow species. It has a wide distribution from Mexico and the greater Antilles to Bolivia where it grows mainly in cloud forest.
This species has lovely stiff, thin leaves like a Juncus grass, hence the specific or species name juncea.
It is very easy to grow but quite slow, with pups taking a couple of years to mature and reach flowering size. The triple headed, flowering plant in my picture i have grown for 8 years! from one small, single plant. This species can have quite a vigorous root system and it has been shown to collect some water and nutrients from the roots and so a mounting material like tree fern bark or even grown in a pot with pure potting bark would benefit this species.
I have lovely small plants available and a few 'very large' flowering size ones.
Always admired these plants but had no idea what to do?
Watched several videos on uTube felt lost and then found the wonderful Andy’s Air Plants. As I live in Plymouth Andy’s being local, well closer than others in the country but most of all, the quality was Very significant. The pics and again the quality of the plants were more encouraging.
Good delivery service and when they all arrived I gave them a good ‘drink’ and created a brilliant display in a hand blown glass coloured bowl.
Thank you and I will be back for more of your beautiful air plants.
It's a pleasure to shop here and to receive such healthy plants so quickly. The packing is brilliant and my juncea arrived in A1 condition. I wouldn't buy air plants anywhere else.
Awesome quality and service.
